Lord, What Is Man? Extremes How Wide
In This Mysterious Nature Join!
The Flesh To Worms And Dust Allied,
The Soul Immortal And Divine.

Divine At First, A Holy Flame
Kindled By Heaven’s Inspiring Breath;
Till Sin, With Power Prevailing, Came;
Then Followed Darkness, Shame And Death.

But Jesus, O Amazing Grace!
Assumed Our Nature As His Own,
Obeyed And Suffered In Our Place,
Then Took It With Him To His Throne.

Now, What Is Man, When Grace Reveals,
The Virtue Of A Saviour’s Blood?
Again A Life Divine He Feels,
Despises Earth And Walks With God.

And What, In Yonder Realms Above,
Is Ransomed Man Ordained To Be!
With Honor, Holiness, And Love,
No Seraph More Adorned Than He.

Nearest The Throne, And First In Song,
Man Shall His Hallelujahs Raise;
While Wondering Angels Round Him Throng
And Swell The Chorus Of His Praise.
